Jane Fonda | Jane Fonda feels ‘very strong’ amid cancer battle


Jane Fonda feels “very strong” amid her battle with cancer.

The 84-year-old actress announced in September that she had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but is now ‘halfway through’ chemotherapy and has found it ‘easier than many other’ options treatment.

She said: “I’m not losing my hair. I’m not nauseous. The week I’m having chemo is tough, but after that I feel great. I feel very strong.”

And the ‘Grace and Frankie’ star even finds time to work out during her treatment days.

She told People magazine: “I’ve lived a good life. I’ve lived a productive, purposeful life.

“And dying is part of life. I hope I can be an example for young people so that they are not afraid of growing old.

“But you just have to take care of yourself, which I still do now. Even on the days I get chemo, I still exercise. It’s slow and it’s not what it used to be. , but still, I’m moving and I keep going strong.”

Jane turned 85 last month, but started her celebrations early with a party in Atlanta on Thursday (10.11.22) that raised over $1 million for the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power Potential (GCAPP), the teen pregnancy prevention and adolescent health organization she founded in 1995.

Guests – who included Tyler Perry, Ludacris, Glennon Doyle and Catherine Keener – enjoyed a performance by Gladys Knight, and there was also a live auction.

At the sale, the ‘9 to 5’ actress offered a bundle where the bidder could join her for a drink at home.

She noted, “And I won’t be on chemo, so I’ll be drinking a lot.”

The winner will also be able to join her in January at the premiere of her next film “80 for Brady”.
